Refreshing Balboa City

Two new redevelopment projects have gone a long way in helping Balboa City rebuild over the past decade. Here are some more of the changes the city experienced.

For full resolution on all pics: Right click image + "View image." Very worth it!!

The central hospital, built in 1910, was in sore need of expansion. But with local transit routes maxed out, a new option was needed.


Room was found within the Western neighborhood Plan to build a brand new hospital.Easily accessible by mss transit, the new hospital could serve 30,000 residents.

A close up at dusk, looking south.


Balboa Terrace park was nearly unchanged since it was built in 1923.


An upgrade in 2006 changed little, other than paving the paths. A new rugby field was added, however.


Just for fun, lets compare Balboa City in 1930....


To today...

Wow.  Awesome city man.  I love being able to look back at when the city was younger and how massive it is now.

Nice update! I like the construction picture for the hospital. The streets in the park are cool. Where did you pick those up?
